London landowner Quintain (LON:QED) has had a higher offer from Lone Star real estate after an activist hedge fund moved to block the deal.

The owner of the land around Wembley stadium, including the Arena, was to be sold to the US-based investment firm for around US$1.1bn (£700mln).

The initial bid was at 131p per share, but reports surfaced on Thursday that Elliott Capital Advisers was not happy with the deal.

Elliott, which owns a 12.9% stake in Quintain, had bought the bulk of its shares at between 130.5p and 131.5p and was likely to gain very little.

The new offer ups the price per share to 141p from 131p, valuing Quintain at £742mln.

Hours later, Lone Star announced it had secured the backing of shares representing 76% of Quintain’s issued equity, making the offer unconditional.

Earlier this year Elliott successfully forced change at Alliance Trust in one of the most high profile public disagreements.
